Abstract

Two novel metal borates, Ba[MB4O8(OH)]·H2O (M = Al/Ga), with a three-dimensional open-framework layer have been synthesized under hydro(solvo)thermal conditions, in which the Al3+/Ga3+ ions have been successfully introduced into the oxoboron cluster backbone and further linked together to form the open-framework layer composed of the [M2B8O20(OH)2] cluster units. The half-unit [MB4O11(OH)] can be viewed as analogous to the known [B5O9(OH)] cluster. Interestingly, the rare M–O–M linkages play a crucial role in forming the open-framework layer.
